Dear list

Version 3.0-1 of the Lahman package was recently submitted to CRAN. It 
contains the
the tables from Sean Lahman's  Baseball Database,
as a set of R data.frames with examples of use.

V 3.0 provides the updated data on pitching, hitting and fielding 
performance and other tables from 1871
through 2013, as recorded in the 2014 version of the database.  The 
Lahman project has a home page
at http://lahman.r-forge.r-project.org/ with some additional examples.  
Additional links to other
applications or analyses of this database are invited.

If you have used the earlier v. 2.0-x package in scripts or examples, 
please note that the database schema
has been somewhat revised to regularize the use of player ID variables 
across the various tables, and
remove some redundant variables, so some scripts may need to be 
revised.  In particular:

   o HallOfFame$hofID is now HallOfFame$playerID
   o managerID is now playerID in all tables
   o Removed from Master: managerID, hofID, holtzID, lahmanID, 
lahman40ID, lahman45ID, nameNote, nameNick, and college
